According to the newspaper “Sun” Manchester United‘s goalkeeper demanded on a nearly double increase of his weekly salary to 370,000 pounds to renew his contract with the Reds. The 27-year-old goalkeeper gets 210,000 pounds for a week and his contract expires in 18 months.
There is an interest in the goalkeeper from Real Madrid, as Manchester United has announced a £115 million price for his rights.
Until recently, De Gea`s financial claims were lower, but this has changed since Alexis Sanchez joined from Arsenal last month.
Sanchez is now the most expensive player in United with 500,000 pounds weekly salary, and De Gea wants to be second after him.
